Re: The WAR HORSE Chronicles

Nice to see Khan of Khans retired. He hasn't raced since 2018 and I was fearing that he'd meet the same fate as his old Suffolk/Finger Lakes buddy Grady did -- breaking down in one of those Mass-bred races Finger Lakes runs. Khan went out a winner in his last race at Suffolk in the summer of 2018, ...

Thais has been retired and is boarded at Claiborne. She's apparently made friends with Elate.
If she is anything at all like who she is named for, she'll make friends with anybody ! An equine hetaera ? :)

And, of course, the come-from-behind master, Calidoscopio . And, Ben's Cat . Now that you've brought this up, names will be popping into my head all n...

Re: Caribe races this past weekend

According to the Blood Horse, this is the third year that the Caribe Classico (I just know I butchered that name! :oops: ) was held at Gulfstream. A 45-1 shot from Venezuela won the classic. For me, two of the most enjoyable series of the year this past week at Gulfstream - the Caribe, and the Clai...
